What you need to know:

  • The KMPDB found that Dr Martin Ajujo, who led the procedure, was still a trainee and was not licensed to conduct surgery without the supervision.
  • Also, investigations show that the clinic had operated without a licence for some months before Ms Mulupi walked in for the second of a three-part surgery.
  • Prof Khainga, Dr Charana and Dr Ajujo sued to stop KMPDB from probing them, claiming patient records showed that she had arrived at Nairobi Hospital while stable.

On June 5 last year, June Wanza Mulupi walked into Surgeoderm Healthcare Limited, a private clinic in Nairobi, to have her breasts enlarged and firmed up.
